Do you want to learn more about the native reptiles and amphibians ("herptiles") that call the Rogue Valley home?
Join ODFW on a hike to look for common species at ODFW's Denman Wildlife Area. Participants will learn about wildlife habitat, and will be introduced to the ecology of local species. We will learn about common inventory techniques used by our biologists to monitor herptile populations, and (weather permitting) participants will have an opportunity to observe and photograph species encountered during the walking survey route. Finally, participants will hear about upcoming opportunities to volunteer with herptile inventory efforts on the Denman Wildlife Area this spring.
Location: Touville Rd
White City, OR 97503
Meet at the gate on Touville Road (Denman Wildlife Area, at the intersection of Agate and Touville).
What to bring: water, snacks, close-toed shoes, long pants, and sunscreen. Potential hazards that we may encounter include poison oak, ticks, wildlife, uneven terrain, and unpredictable weather. We will be walking off-trail, less than 1 mile, on flat, uneven terrain.
Registration: Please contact Jade Keehn (541-826-8774 x 232) for questions about this and other upcoming herptile events.
